    CFN90049 Ergocalciferol

    Ergocalciferol (Vitamin D2) is a selective inhibitor of mammalian DNA polymerase A (pol A) with IC50 of 123 mM. Ergocalciferol can delay the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism in children with CKD2-3. Ergocalciferol can cause HL-60 apoptosis via a modulation of mitochondria involving ROS production, GSH depletion, caspase activation, and Fas induction, on the basis of anticancer activity of ergocalciferol, it may be feasible to develop chemopreventive agents from edible mushrooms or hop. Ergocalciferol can prevent glucocorticoid-induced bone loss, but even increase lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral densities (BMD) in postmenopausal women commencing glucocorticoid therapy, it also is safe and effective in reducing the risk of a fracture in elderly patients with AD.
